Abstract:
The Familien befinden sich weltweit in einem tiefgehenden Wandel. Vielfältige Formen von Lebensgemeinschaften werden nebeneinander gelebt. Familie ist dabei immer noch die mit Abstand häufigste Form. Welche ethischen Orientierungen zur Gestaltung der Familien in den verschiedenen kulturellen und religiösen Kontexten ergeben sich? Welche Massnahmen zur Weiterentwicklung der Familienpolitiken sind nötig? Die Studie bringt die christlich-protestantische Perspektive in den Dialog ein, mit seiner Betonung der Freiheit, Partnerschaftlichkeit und Verantwortung gegenüber dem Einzelnen und der Gemeinschaft.

Abstract:
En République Démocratique du Congo, l'État moderne bute à la diversité des mécanismes culturels traditionnels de transformation des conflits : autant de tribus, autant de mécanismes culturels traditionnels. C'est pourquoi réduire le dualisme en ce qui concerne la justice moderne et la justice traditionnelle en matière de transformation des conflits est une voie cruciale, qu'analyse en contexte cette étude sur les mécanismes culturels de transformation des conflits.

Abstract:
Justice climatique et interdiction de nuire constitue une synthèse interdisciplinaire. L'auteur a médité les thèmes clés des sciences de l'environnement dont il agence le propos de façon organique et structurée, l'érudition servant toujours à cerner sa question principale. Il montre les insuffisances de la justice distributive et la pertinence de l'intervention du principe d'interdiction de nuire dans le dossier climatique. En reconnaissant la biosphère comme support de vie commun des êtres humains, ce livre introduit une rupture épistémologique que la philosophie morale n'avait pas encore répercutée avec une telle puissance. Saura-t-il lancer et soutenir un débat nécessaire ?

Abstract:
With the increase of Chinese Christians born in the "post-70s" and "post-80s" generations, the issue of early childhood education in Christian families deserves attention from an academic standpoint in these days. This study aims to interpret the meaning of Christian families' childrearing experiences within the social and cultural contexts of China. It explores the educational philosophy of Chinese Christian families and examines how it influenced their childrearing activities through the detailed descriptions of Chinese Christian mothers' childrearing experiences. Christian fathers are more involved in education than non-Christian. The parents act with the dual cultural orientation of "Sincization" and "Christianization".

Abstract:
The question of hunger world-wide is a striking paradox: Why should the world that enjoys a radically advanced human civilization still face threats of disease and death from hunger and starvation? This paradox provokes three other related questions: Firstly, what exactly does hunger as a world problem consist in, and how does it come about? Secondly, the persistence of this paradox compels the question as to whether there have been attempts to its solution: What are these attempts, and why does hunger still persist?

Abstract:
"Ce livre est une invitation à humaniser la violence. Bien qu'elle soit le moyen d'expression devenu courant dans la Province du Nord-Kivu en République Démocratique du Congo, la violence n'est pas une fatalité. Répondre à la violence par la violence serait rentrer dans une spirale de violence. Mais opposer à la violence le pardon qui débouche sur la réconciliation, voilà ce que c'est l'humanisation de la violence dans la mesure où le concept de réconciliation appelle à devenir l'autre."

Abstract:
This survey measures Africans' perceptions of Chinese business in their countries. Such a survey is long overdue. Fifteen African countries with a large presence of Chinese companies were identified to participate in the survey. In total, 1,056 Africans completed an online questionnaire. The results indicate that Africans are happy with Chinese investment in that it contributes to development. They are, however, concerned about its economic, workplace, social and environmental impacts.
